NASA invites you to put your name on the Mars 2020 rover

  • The NASA 2020 Mars spacecraft

And similarly, more than two million names were sent to Mars onboard the NASA InSight mission in May 2018.

NASA is giving the public an opportunity to send their names - etched on microchips - to Mars via its rover that is set to launch next summer.

The names - stenciled on chips - will be sent on the rover, which represents the initial leg of humanity's first round trip to another planet, NASA said in a statement.

NASA is now offering boarding passes to Mars.

A lab for microdevices at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory will use an electron beam to stencil in the names that the public submits, NASA said.

NASA previously launched a similar campaign past year, when the space agency's fans were offered a chance to send their names to the Sun. Those who have participated in the past are part of NASA's "frequent flier" program that can be downloaded as a "boarding pass" that shows past participation.

The Mars 2020 mission is scheduled to launch as early as July 2020, and it is expected to reach the red planet in February 2021.

Each person taking part will also receive a souvenir boarding pass and frequent flyer points, as well as a digital mission patche.

"It's an exciting time for NASA, as we embark on this voyage to answer profound questions about our neighbouring planet, and even the origins of life itself".

NASA did something similar when it sent its InSight lander to Mars, which landed on the planet previous year.

You might not have done an intensive astronaut training course, but NASA still wants you to get involved in its next mission to Mars.

NASA has chosen Jezero Crater as the landing site for the Mars 2020 rover, a robotic scientist weighing more than 2,300 lbs.

The Mars rover will collect samples and search for microbial life, study Mars' climate and geology and, according to NASA "pave the way for human exploration of the planet". One or more chips will sit under a glass cover on the rover. Government, industry and worldwide partners will join NASA in a global effort to build and test the systems needed for human missions to Mars and beyond.
